Legislative Update - October 2022

Governance & Higher Education 

In a Washington Post op-ed, the title read Higher Education Is About to Get Even More Political. The headline begs those at the front of the proverbial Ivory Tower to invest in regularly staying abreast of and understanding the legislative landscape. Being conscious of the legislative landscape directly impacts the Strategic Enrollment Management roles of higher education from the Office Associate to the Vice President. Lens, perspective, and positionality awareness matter because our students, many of us, have been and are students, and the impact on higher education as an industry will ripple for years.

Eye on Research: February 2021

The COVID-19 mental health impact, community college transfer, and credentials

I hoped that 2021 would start well and stay smooth, and it has for AACRAO Research. But it is off to a bumpy start for many of our members in parts of the country impacted by extreme weather. Even with the disruption many are facing, our members have been generous with their time by continuing to respond to our research requests – almost 1,000 responded to the training needs survey! I have said it many times, our research, and the practice and policy recommendations that are gleaned from the data, would not be possible without your participation; thank you.
